Here are tips to keep your Workers Debit Card secure:
- Total recall. Memorize your PIN number. Do not write it down and do not share it.
- Nothing obvious. Select a PIN that’s unique. Do not use a date of birth or phone number.
- Switch digits. Change your PIN regularly.
- Wrong message. Never email your debit card number to anyone.
- Seek a seal. When ordering items online, make sure that the website begins with “https” and has a security seal.
- Out of sight. Keep your debit card in a safe place. Treat it like your Social Security number.
- Bad call. Do not give out your card number by phone unless you know the caller.
- Human shield. Be careful to shield the keyboard from the person behind you when punching your PIN into an ATM.
It’s a Sin to Reveal Your PIN
Aren’t debit cards a great invention? You buy something nice, slip the card into a thin slot, yank it back out and keep on shopping. Know who else loves debit cards? Thieves. Some engage in skimming – rigging ATMs to copy a card’s magnetic strip and record the PIN. But not all tactics are so high-tech. Too many people use obvious PINs or write them down in easy-to-find places. That makes your savings easy pickings. Our advice: Work hard to guard the card.
